The Texas Tech University System is a state university system in Texas consisting of four separate universities in the state of Texas, of which two are academic institutions: Angelo State University and Texas Tech University, and two are health institutions: Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso. The System is headquartered in the Administration Building on the Texas Tech University campus in Lubbock, Texas. In 1999, the Texas Legislature formally established the Texas Tech University System, consisting of the same two institutions, overseen by the board of regents, and the newly created position of chancellor to provide leadership and support for both Texas Tech University System, and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. In 2007, Angelo State University left the Texas State University System and joined the Texas Tech System. On May 18, 2013, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso was established as a separate university in El Paso. The four institutions of the Texas Tech University System are located on multiple campuses and academic sites.
